Using ProfileUnity ProfileDisk might cause some AppV applications to fail to launch

Possible Resolution(s):

  1. Must be on latest Hotfix (dated 10-6-20 or later) for ProfileUnity (see: ProfileUnity HotFix)

  2. On your master image (Program Files\ProfileUnity\Flexapp\Container Service\x64 and x86) and within the in your deployment path, edit VirtFsService.exe.config option "HandleUserData" and set it to True.

  3. To retain App-V Applications personal settings, Create a Custom portability rule and corresponding ruleset for "C:\ProU_UserData\%username%" and then delete .manifest file from portability directory after each logoff:
    Create "User Defined Script Rule"
    Execute: After ProfileUnity at Logoff (Post-Logoff)
    Type: Executable
    File: %systemroot%\system32\cmd.exe /c del /f \\server\Profiles\%username%\Portability\nameofportabilityarchiveforappv.manifest

  4. If the OS is NOT rolled back ( persistent), then on Logoff you must also delete this folder after ProU runs and also make another config file change to force a reboot after logoff:
    Create "User Defined Script Rule"
    Execute: After ProfileUnity at Logoff (Post-Logoff)
    Type: Executable
    File:  %systemroot%\system32\cmd.exe /c rmdir /s /q C:\ProU_UserData\%username%

    On your master image (Program Files\ProfileUnity\Client.NET) and within the in your deployment path, edit the LwL.ProfileUnity.Client.CmdService.exe.config and set open "LogoffRestarts" to True.
